First of all, I love using music simply as background music. There are research-based studies that state music with certain beats per minute actually stimulates thinking and focus. With this in mind, I like to use sites like Pandora or Grooveshark to simply play what I call "thinking music" while students are working. You can search for classical music or (my favorite) Celtic music and create stations on each of these sites.
Now, if you're looking for music/video to actually reinforce instruction, I love School House Rock. Yeah, I know, it's "old school," but the oldies never die, my friends! Another class-favorite is Teacher & the Rockbots. I've linked up a few videos we've used in class. Enjoy!
We break out the air guitars and rock out to the 50 States song.
This is another fun one the kids enjoy!
An oldie, but a goodie!
Now, it's your turn! Link up and share your favorite learnin' tunes and vids! :)
